moved for leave to introduce Bill C-207, an act respecting the provision of compensation to public safety officers who lost their lives while on duty.

Mr. Speaker, September 11 showed us that police officers and firefighters rush in to help while others flee for their safety.

Bill C-207 proposes the creation of a public safety officers compensation fund comparable to the one that exists in the United States. It would be for the benefit of families of police officers, firefighters and other public safety officers who lose their lives in the line of duty.

I look forward to discussing this matter with my colleagues. I hope my bill will earn the support of all hon. members.
